She started collecting in the late 1960s and patiently built her collection over several decades, often receiving new pieces annually as Christmas, Birthday, or Valentines gifts. She continued collecting into the 1990s. She treasured the fragile HRs so much she boxed them away and stored them in a closet for many years.Upon finding a sturdy display cabinet she put her collection on display. Her heart and passion was for the detailed craftsmanship of HR horses and hopes the historic artistry of her treasures continue to bring joy and appreciation to someone for many years to come.
